St. Patty’s Snow Peas

When I got home last night, my neighbor had left 2 lbs of snow peas for our family!  Although, I may be sharing snow pea recipes all week, I wanted to start with a delicious way to eat them: Warm Green Pepper Snow Pea Salad!

First off, a little about this delicious food:  Snow Peas are low in fat, high in fiber and protein.  But it’s also a good source of Vitamin C, folate, manganese, potassium, thiamin, and even protein!

So, while these babies are just delicious raw, dipped in a little ranch, we also like to eat them warm.
